Roc Michel 2009
The Mosby Roc Michel is a Rhône varietal blend of Syrah and Mourvedre. The grapes for this wine came from son Michael Mosby’s Fremir Vineyards, located in Monterey County. The name, Roc Michel, means “Michael’s rock” referring to the particular soil where the vineyard is planted and to the steadfast temperament of Michael himself. The terroir of Parkfield, earthquake capital of the world, is especially well suited for the grapes that make up this flavorful blend.
This ruby-hued, dry red wine has a succulent mouth feel and rich, ripe berry fruit with a chocolaty essence and a mysterious tropical note.
Mosby Roc Michel is a lush, satisfying wine. Enjoy it with grilled or roasted meats including beef, lamb, or game. Add dimension to hearty vegetable fare such as roasted pumpkin soup or grilled Portobello mushrooms. Equally at home served with simple desserts, as an alternative to stronger or sweeter after-dinner drinks.. Bon Appetit!
